Where can I buy a tin-lined copper saucepan?

fearlessbiscuit | Aug 9, 201302:10 PM

I'm looking to splurge and purchase a copper saucepan (around 2.5 quarts), and after doing some reading I've decided I'd prefer one with a tin lining (rather than stainless steel). I'm leaning toward a Mauviel, but I'm not ruling any other brands out.

I've searched the websites of manufacturers, fancy retailers, restaurant supply places, and everywhere else I could think of but I'm not finding what I'm looking for. There's no shortage of stainless-lined pots available for order, and although there are plenty of posts (here and elsewhere) by people talking about their tin-lined saucepans, there are no clues as to what retailers are currently selling them.

I did find a section on Dehillerin's website devoted to tin-lined pots, but there's no telling what brand they are (or how heavy), and even their volume is hard to guess—the only measurement is of their diameter. I am in Los Angeles, so I can't pop into the store to take a look.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any leads or ideas. If you have a tin-lined saucepan, where did you buy it? Do you know of any places that sell them, either online or in the LA area?

Thanks in advance for your help!
